We did it! One day - 225 volunteers, 6 hours and one brand new playground! Check out the timelapse - plus the first day of play!  See more

THE STORY:

Our 2nd school will open this September and it doesn’t have a playground!  WE need YOUR help to raise $15,500!

In just one day, September 21st, 2012 we will build a playground out of an asphalt parking lot at the YMCA’s Detroit Innovation Academy -18211 Plymouth Rd. Detroit, MI 48228

Background-

Two years ago the Y opened the Detroit Leadership Academy and with help of over 200 volunteers we built a playground. (see photos on left)

“It was the best fun day ever. We love our playground and take care of it too.”
Curtis, Age 11,  student at DLA and playground supervisor

How you can help:

First,  you can help us raise funds to get this project off the ground.

Second, you can build with us on Friday, September 21st. Invite your friends/coworkers to join as well.

Thanks for supporting our project! We can’t wait to play!
